Coneflowers and tulips

Even though I paint flowers regularly I only posted here once (for a monthly challenge). I want my paintings to be bold/strong with a little bit of drama and a bit abstracted.
These were made for the last two WDEs in the AMAE forum. Both are 8x8", acrylics on canvas. Critiques are most welcome.

Re: Coneflowers and tulips

I think I saw these in the WDE, but for some reason here they look even more beautiful.

Re: Coneflowers and tulips

These are bright and beautiful. I would like to suggest you use this style in a larger format. I truly believe you could sell them easily that way.

Re: Coneflowers and tulips

Thank you all for looking and commenting. I appreciate it.
Mark, I do paint bigger in this style. These are my smallest paintings but my biggest painting was 72x44".
